south of the new york city metro area. i'm at laguardia, and i can tell you we've seen 50 or so cancellations as of this morning and this afternoon, but more likely to come as the snow really starts to work its way into the city this afternoon and this evening. we're looking to pick up anywhere say one to three inches in manhattan and some of the higher elevations like the hudson valley and you could be looking at anywhere from 6 to 8 inches and cities like boston are going to get socked this evening and we could see anywhere up to a foot of snow in the boston area so certainly travel in and out of logan is not going to be too keen by the time tomorrow morning rolls around if you are trying to get there for the holiday destination for the new year. here in new york it's not as big of a storm as we saw in the past week where we saw hundreds of delay s a delays and cancellations. wins are no match for aviation and we saw winds upwards of 40 miles an hour. overall, system wide the situation should play better for those travelers playing in the holiday destinations. >> julie martin,

, especially when they can be easily replaced. but hundreds of fast food workers here in the city of new york took the chance on thursday morning at 6:30 a.m. local time and walked out. protesting for higher pay and the right to organize. in all, reported 200-plus workers took part, including one worker who was later fired. but then, rehired at a brooklyn wendy's restaurant after the restaurant's actions came under direct protest. it's the kind of retaliation and something that these employees are consistently living in fear of and why they stepped out following in the footsteps of the recent walmart black friday strikers. are we now at a tipping point for low-wage labor. are we at a place where it's making a comeback. dorian warren is here with me. i know your work and research and efforts are really around labor organizing. tuesday was quite an exciting moment. >> yes. it was an absolutely exciting, especially the week after black friday where hundreds and thousands of people supported walmart workers, also going on strike. just a little context. fast food as well as retail, fastest gr

loopholes that they want. >> just to rich's point. the nra is more aggressive in opposition. you saw after the expiration of the assault weapons ban in 2004, they got aggressive. it was before staying your ground was passed. they banned cities. they got aggressive really quickly. they are still more aggressive than the other side. >> i truly believe, i still believe the vast majority of americans across all affiliations are reasonable people. the tragedy in newtown wasn't a true game changer. on my way down here, i saw the new edition, people magazine that has the faces of all those kids on the cover. as time goes on, parents will write a book about their experience. we come to know more about their children. it's not going to go away. it touched such a nerve with people, they are against something that is very different from the past where they could die down and go back to business as usual. i think this is something that touches on every parent's worst nightmare. it's not going to go away. with the strategy, the game is different now. >> i want to reiterate that wayne lapierre int

foreclosed -- a vacant home is full of costs for the community. cities are left holding the bill. fire and police resources to secure it and the maintenance to keep it from falling into blight and disrepair. it's siphoning off badly needed property taxes. neighboring homeowners can only watch as their own property values plummet. at my table, jonathan capehart, a fellow at the university of texas, sheila crowley, president and ceo of the low income housing and james perry. in full disclosure, he's my husband. james, i want to start with you on this. this is the work that you have been doing as americans are reading the headlines saying housing is back, what do we need to know? >> you have to step back for a second and think about what you said. in the fourth quarter, wells fargo made $4 billion. this monumental settlement was $175 million. they still made $4 billion with a "b." we have seen them rewarded for bad action. what's so heinous about how they act is they use people in minority communities to build their own ability to make profit. they network with pastors, community activists. t

, and a bigger city, and what is frightening i think the most about this particular tragedy, you know, connecticut is a safe state. this is not going to happen somewhere in intercity chicago, but the fifth toughest gun law state in the nation. this happened in a state that is the third or the second or the third safest state in terms of gun crime. people move there so that these things won't happen and you can feel safe. >> joy, you have brought us exactly where we are going to take a break and come back to ari and michael on this exact issue, because as much as i appreciate the psychology of that, so why do we think it is okay to happen on the street corners of chicago and new york and new orleans and when we come back, we will talk about the gun violence that is not making headlines, but killing our children all the same.
